Athletico Do Hollande were bidding to become only the second team in history to win three eurofootballfives tournaments when they met Inter Women in the 2011 Amsterdam Fives final. Inter Women had other ideas and claimed their maiden title with a superb 4-1 victory.

It was disappointment for Athletico Do Hollande who hoped to add an Amsterdam trophy to two Algarve successes. Inter Women were superb though and with the tournament top goalscorer (Daniel Powell, 16 goals) plus plenty of goals from elsewhere they thoroughly deserved their victory.

In the Plate competition Rigford Seahawks won their 3rd title as they added the 2011 Amsterdam Fives Plate to the 2009 Krakow Trophy Cup and 2009 Prague Trophy Plate. They defeated Ireland's Deportivo Dooradoyle 1-0 in a tight final.

The 2011 Algarve Open was one of our greatest tournaments to date and saw Athletico Do Hollande create a little bit of history when they became the first team in 33 tournaments to retain a eurofootballfives.com title.

A number of teams had come close with 3 teams making the final the year after they'd won a title but all had lost. Athletico Do Hollande broke the mould to add the 2011 Algarve Open title to their 2010 triumph. They were made to work very hard though as Cheesecake FC pushed them all the way but the Dutch had just enough to win 3-2. There was double success for Athletico as their striker Toufik Haddouchi claimed the top goalscorer award with 9 goals in the tournament.

In the Plate competition there was success for Eagles UnAthletic who had also won the 2010 Krakow Trophy Plate (under the name Eagles Old Boys). In the Wooden Spoon it was a debut win for Misfits FC.

The debut Mallorca Tournament proved a hit in 2011 with teams from Ecuador, England and Spain competing for glory on the beautiful Balearic Island.

With 12 teams coming to do battle we had two groups of six with some of the most competitive group football we've had in 31 tournaments to date. There was some great football and intriguing results along the way.

In the end the overall prize was won by Policia Local de Palma who had too much in the tank for an entertaining Quayaquil 100% side with their flamboyant South American style.

In the Plate competition it was FC Dukesfield who emerged victorious via Golden Goal against Inter Urmum.

The Top Goalscorer prize was claimed by Piero Zapata of Quayaquil 100% with 10 goals in 7 games.
